We’re looking for a DHIS2 specialist or someone ready to become one. Most of our projects include a DHIS2 instance running either in house or by the customer.

The specialist will be to become our “one stop shop” regarding any DHIS2 related questions, from feature knowledge (“is this possible in DHIS2 and how?”) to methodology (“What’s the best way to store this information in the tracker?”) – from data entry to pivot table, from country level to tracked entities.

The function will help the business team in their interaction with the customer and support the product team for any DHIS2 related question. Although this is not a developer job, good understanding of data problems is important and frequent contact with the development team are expected.


You will report to the CTO, but will work with various parts of the company – business development, product and the development team. As we expect this area of work to grow, you may be joined by other DHIS2 profiles in the coming months.

What we look for:

Experience with large/complex DHIS2 systems is ideal, bonus if this include some tracker programs.

Experience with data warehouses architecture and problems would be much appreciated

Experience and with complex excel sheets (multi level formulas, etc) and generally reporting tools (Business Object or others) is mandatory.

Hint: if you are not experienced in DHIS2 but think you could learn, we encourage you to do your homework – the available documentation & webinars are pretty good and freely available.

Recruitment process:

This is not written in stone, but we roughly follow this process:

  • Martin, our CTO make a first contact, typically a short call to expand a bit on the offer and answer any immediate question. He’ll also ask for any input the team could get
  • The second and main step is a group interview (in person and/or with a conf call) with people from the various teams you’ll interact with. Our reasoning is that they would be your closest colleagues so we want to see if this would work.  This is generally more a conversation with some emphasis on your background and what you could bring to the team
  • Once this is done, we collect the feedback on our side (this is generally done the day after). At that time, if both you and the team are positive, we extend you an offer.

If your status allows for it, we’re also happy to give you a short assignment on a real case and make you work on it (we’re paying, of course).


Brussels based (or around) will be preferred due to the inherent “Q/A / work together” aspect of the work, but we are open to discussion. Operating on a similar schedule is mandatory (so Europe and Africa are possible). We’ll want you to spend a minimum some weeks with us at the HQ to learn to know each other.
